Good, give it to Antonov in Ukraine as a start of payback for the destroyed Ан-225 Мрия
I do not know much about international law. That being said, I would suspect that the plane would be impounded and held in Canada until such time, if ever, there is a ruling from an international court dealing with seized Russian assets, both government and private. At that time, any seized assets found eligible to be declared repatriations, would then be awarded as the international court decided. Again that is only my uneducated guess.
Unless it is cared for properly, by the time a court rules it will be junk.
I would suspect that it would be properly cared for, why not? That yacht which was seized would not be allowed to sink.
Don't know the law on seized assets, but maintenance in flying status might be hard to accomplish given the fact that Canada probably has no spare parts for the plane. As big as it is they probably don't have a hanger for it. And they likely don't have manuals for it. Cranking it up might not be a good idea ("Gee, wonder what THIS button is for? OOPS!"). Stored outside will take its toll.
U Tube it
Uhhh, sorry sport but it is not Canada's to give.
